Dr. AQ Khan to launch TTP - Tehreek-e-Tahaffuz Pakistan -:)

  • With election fever gripping the politically astute across the country, Dr Abdul Qadir Khan, renowned as the father of Pakistan’s nuclear programme, is all set to launch a nationwide campaign under the banner of Tehreek-e-Tahaffuz Pakistan (TTP). The campaign will be aimed at increasing political awareness amongst the youth in the country.

    Talking to The Express Tribune, Dr Khan said, “TTP wants to create political awareness amongst the youth regarding who to vote for and who not to vote for. I will consistently urge youth to elect honest persons in upcoming elections and stand for survival of the country.”

    Noting the failure of traditional political parties in delivering on their promises, Dr Khan called a spade a spade by emphasising that his party’s campaign would ask the youth not to vote for traditional parties such as Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

    Established in July 2012, the TTP has so far gained little political ground among the masses. Political pundits have predicted that while Dr Khan carries enormous respect among the people for his invaluable commitment and service to the country, the TTP is unlikely to gain any significant vote bank or public support.

    Dr Khan, who is known to be in contact with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, has demonstrated his preference for emerging political parties such as PTI. His campaign is likely to advocate such platforms as an alternative political choice for the youth.

    “Dr Khan’s main objective in launching his political party is to remain in political limelight,” observed senior political analyst Zahid Hussain.

    Seemingly inspired by the political rise of his Indian counterpart Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who served as president, political analysts suggest that the TTP would remain a small, insignificant political group such as the Awami Qiadat Party of former army chief General (retd) Mirza Aslam Beg.

    “Such initiatives are a product of political ambition and personal whims. It will be an addition to the many rightwing outfits which brood on a false sense of glory,” added political analyst and poet Harris Khalique.

    In an attempt to start party organisation Dr Khan has reportedly held meetings with former army chief Aslam Beg, former prime minister Azad Kashmir Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan, former ministers Ghulam Sarwar Cheema and Malik Ameen Aslam.

    Party workers, while talking to The Express Tribune have said that the TTP is unique in so far as it is a guidance movement for patriotic youth, adding that well-known traders across the country, particularly Karachi, have pledged financial support for Dr Khan’s initiative.

    The party, which has started its campaign through a Facebook page, has so far drawn 21 supporters. However, party workers are confident that as the party starts opening its provincial offices, the movement will gain momentum among the populace as Dr Khan supports the campaign through public appearances, columns, and television and radio programs.


  • Branding is very important. Who advised Dr. Saab to pick the name TTP? With Tahreek e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Defense Pakistan Council (DPC) we had enough hands on hose to 'save' Pakistan. Dr. Saab could have spent his retirement age in peace and comfort but perhaps he is used to be in lime light. It's like Oxygen for him, he has to have it to live. Yet another Bawa Jee going after the youth.

    No worries Sir Jee, there is no nuclear bomb anymore, all he has big old bum ....


  • ^^^ And a political mentor in the dude heading a tanga outfit called Pakistan Peoples Muthaida Tehreek-e-Insaf Movement.

  • The majority of youth have already decided and that is IK, so it seems Dr A Q Khan is wasting his time if he thinks youth will support him. Does PTI really want an alliance with DR A Q khan, i do not think so.

    If A Q khan wanted to do something for pk youth he should have supported IK,

    But anyway good luck to him,but personally he is wasting his time, but u never now cud win a few seats if he tries hard.

  • ^^^^ Oh wow! What candor and bravado. The above statement is coming from a supporter of a party which only exists on Facebook and the cyber world where even the likes of Ustad Tabla Master claims massive following.

  • AQ Khan just wants to avoid criticism which would come if he joins a mainstream party.

    He has therefore decided to launch a new party and then form an alliance with PTI come elections.

    آج کل اسریل بھی کافی ہے -- قادیانو ن کو وہاں کے ویزے اور قومیت کوئی مسلہ ہی نہیں -- ویسے جب برطانیہ کا راج تو اس کو یہودی بنکر کونٹرول کر رہے تھے -- آج امریکا کا راج ہے تو اس کو بھی سود خوار یہودی

  • I think this move from AQK is well calculated but I have one question regarding the name opted for this party which in my view is NOTORIOUS rather than FAMOUS....... If Doc is after notority by choice then its good but if its otherway round then its bad selection (in my view)....

  • امیر المومنین ضیاء الحق کے مرنے کے بعد اس نیے مسلمان پاکستان میں اس کے پیروکار مسلم لیگی ،جماعتی اور مولوی یتیم ہو گئے تھے ، ادھر انہیں پی پی سے خطرہ تھا ، ساری اسٹبلشمنٹ ،عدلیہ ، فوج ،مولویوں نے مل کر پی پی کا راستہ روکا اور آئی جے آئی بنائی ، جیسا کہ مولوی کی تاریخ ہے کہ اسکا اسلام کی پر بھی راضی نہ ہوا ، مولوی اور فوجی نواز شریف سے دور ہوتے چلے گئے اور نزاس شریف نے ملا سیاست سے آہستہ آھستہ اپنے آپ کو الگ کرنا شروع کر دیا ،خاص تو پر مشرف کے بعد والے نواز شریف نے تو ان جماعتیوں اور حمید گلیوں کو منہ بھی نہیں لگایا

    ایک بڑی تعداد میں یہ سیاسی یتیم کبھی طالبان کو سپورٹ کرتے اور خدھکش دھماکوں اور مذہبی دہشتگردی کرواتے یا انکی سپورٹ کرتے کہ یہ نظام ناکام ہوگا تو شاید انکی حکومت آجاے

    ان یتیموں نے مشرف کو سپورٹ کیا مگر وہ بھی ان کے ابو میں نہیں آیا

    ایم ایم اے سے امید ہوی تھی مگر پچھلے الیکشن میں بری طرح شکست ہوئی

    یہ اسلامی فوجی کبھی ایدھی کو دھمکاتے رہے یا حکیم سعید کے پاؤں پڑتے کہ انکی قیادت کریں

    عمران کو بچکانہ ذہن کو انہوں نے پچھلے دس سالوں میں تیار کیا مگر انہیں ابھی بھی اس پر بھروسہ نہیں

    یہ ملا ملٹری جماعتی دل سے تو مارشل لا اور فوجی حکومت چاہتے ہیں لیکن انہیں ڈر ہے کہ کہیں مشرف جیسا آگیا تو مسلہ ہو جائے گا

    جس طرح انہوں نے عمران کو تیار کیا ہے اسی طرح عبد القدیر کو بھی تیار کیا ،پہلے عبد القدیر کی ذہنی تربیت ہوئی اور اب میدان میں اتارا گیا ہے
